Laser Cut Patterns

Invitation by Giant Invitations

Revolutionary laser cutting technology enables you to make amazing shapes and you can create literally any design from an elaborate floral pattern to a bespoke pop up style wedding invitation. If you want a truly unique invitation you can make your own illustration or choose a gorgeous pattern from your favourite supplier.

This style can be used for all other stationery products such as envelope liners, menus, place cards and guest favour packaging, but you can also make fabulous designs for paper bunting or even wedding cake decorations.

Watercolour Wash

Invitation by Cass Deller Design

From splashes of one single colour topped with elegant lettering to fashionable ombre designs and floral motifs, using watercolours to make your wedding invitations can be a fun DIY project to save some money.

Just use watercolours from your wedding palette and splash them onto crisp white paper. Wait until it dries and use a printer to insert the text onto your handmade invitation. Experiment with watercolours and different fonts until you find a design you really like and make sure to select fine quality paper.

You can also buy amazing invitation cards inspired by this wedding stationery trend which include invitations, information cards, RSVP cards, envelopes etc, and come in various ombre colours to coordinate with a wide range of wedding themes.

Foil Stamping
